Public Hearing - FM 1488


Magnolia West High School
42202 FM 1774 
Magnolia, TX 77355 (Map)


Sept. 7, 2017
Open House: 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Formal Presentation: 6:30 p.m.


The purpose of the hearing is to gather public input on the proposed relief route on the north side of the city of Magnolia, Montgomery County, Texas. The first part of the meeting will be an open house format so citizens may come and go at their convenience, followed by a formal presentation and comment period.


The proposed project would construct a four lane divided highway on new location around the north side of Magnolia from existing FM 1488 west of Magnolia to proposed SH 249 east of Magnolia. The proposed project also includes two grade separated overpasses at FM 1774/Union Pacific Rail Road and at the proposed SH 249.

  • The total length of the project is approximately 5.4 miles 
  • Approximately 155 acres of additional right of way (ROW) would be required 
  • Anticipated displacements include: 11 residential or associated outbuildings, two commercial, one storm water detention pond, and one utility facility. Displacements are dependent on final design.

The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
